What is Tenant Based Rental Assistance?
The Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) provides subsidized housing in tenant based housing. Tenants select private rental housing that meets occupancy standards and passes an inspection. This program is similar to the Section 8 voucher program provided by local housing authorities. To qualify for TBRA households must be eligible for the Family Investment Program (FIP) and participating in the Family Development and Self Sufficiency (FaDSS) program or have successfully completed and exited the FaDSS program and continue to meet the income requirements for TBRA. Households meeting eligibility guidelines will be selected on a first come first served basis. Preference will be given to households at or below 60% of Area Median Income (AMI). Interested applicants should contact Housing Stabilization Director, Ned Van Nostrand at 641-682-8741.
